The new classic – faucet
Marcel Wanders – Laufen – 2016/18
Associate Creative Director
The New Classic combines the designer’s flair and creativity with Laufen’s wealth of expertise. Implementing the extremely fine, precise dividing lines that form a key part of the faucet design requires high-precision manufacturing methods. The washbasin and bidet mixers owe their slim faucet bodies to the high-grade brass cartridge, with a diameter of just 25 mm. For ‘The New Classic’ wall faucet with two knobs, the Swiss company devised a particularly attractive installation solution. The knobs are cast in one piece and fitted directly to the wall, with a deep compensation system concealed behind the wall. That makes wall rosettes that protrude to different heights from the wall a thing of the past. ‘The New Classic’ is also eco-friendly. The Ecototal cartridge in the shower and bath mixers reduces water and energy consumption with a temperature and volume restrictor. The washbasin and bidet mixers are also equipped with environmentally friendly technology and meet the requirements of the highest energy saving class of the Unified Water Label.
